    Beautiful Engagement Photos!

    My fiance worked with Kim to capture our engagement and Emerald Lake Lodge and she was amazing! She was knowledgeable about the location and the best spots to take photos, and was great to work with. She got our sneak peek photos to us so quickly so we were able to share the news with friends and family. Her photos were gorgeous, and we would absolutely recommend contacting Kim for your engagement/wedding photos!

    Amazing Wedding Pictures

    We had our wedding in Banff a few weeks ago and Kim was amazing. We completely trusted her to pick the best spots for the pictures and she delivered above and beyond - photos turned out amazing! Would recommend her 110%!

    Hey you, overwhelmed bride, have a look at this

    This is for the brides: Please do yourself a favour and work with Kim!

    Why? here I go with some reasons:

    - We had a video call before hiring her. Whatever we said there, we were being listened to with attention. She's got lots of experience and she knows what she is doing, but she will listen to what the couples want as a first thing and will give you recommendations when asked for.
    - Before and after the wedding, she answered every email very fast, same day and very often the same hour after we had sent our emails (this is really important when you are organizing, trust me).
    - On the wedding day, she came before time. She was ready to start working way before the appointed time. We had a delay and she didn't put any kind of pressure on us.
    - She worked with our video guys as a team. They had worked together before but they were working so smoothly that we could just forget that they were there. She recommended professionals for the video and ceremony, all of them very good recommendations for our personalities and the type of wedding we were planning.
    - The pictures you will get are just awesome. No Instagram filters used here!
    - During the photoshoot we were really comfortable (1st time having a photo shoot for us). She was giving us instructions that didn't seem to be ridiculous poses for us to do, they were all actions that felt absolutely natural and you can see it in our final gallery.

    - THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON:
    Before, during and after the wedding, you brides might find that some of your overexcited guests really want to control the flow of your day (always trying to help of course!). Well, Kim is here for you! mine was a small wedding, with very few people, but I was getting pretty overwhelmed with everyone "knowing better than me" how my day was supposed to go. Not really understanding the flow of the day, you might find them all over the place telling everyone what to do. But Kim took the lead in a very respectful way. She would listen to what the couple wanted (that's the only thing that matters!) and will give the so-needed recommendations. With her confidence, sweet smile and knowledge she will let everyone know that we have professionals here and that this is an already planned wedding! She kind of became my voice after a while. I was so overwhelmed with so many little things to decide that by the end I would just ask Kim: What do you recommend? so I totally relied on her. And when I wanted something different, she would do her work with the warmest smile.

    You are getting married and during your wedding day, you will probably be on the fullest-of-emotions version of yourself. Guests trying to help and making lots of questions (questions and advice everywhere!) can make you want to give up on everything and just answer everyone "it doesn't matter, it's okay, as you wish". I just wanted to worry about my lipstick and my brand new husband!! Well, thanks to Kim, I was able to do it. My wedding was awesome!
